Nice and cosy place in Ramsey. great service by smiling staff. Onion soup was tasty, grilled fish with pineapple salsa was delicious. The best was grilled potato wedges with the fish dish which was out of the world. Highly recommend this place if you are at Ramsey.

Very disappointed with the afternoon tea, took my mother for her birthday. Now, I am a bit of an afternoon tea connoisseur, and can I just point out to you that you do not serve afternoon tea on dinner plates!! Too much food in much too big portions to be called afternoon tea, big "butties", they served us sandwiches on... More

Took my mother for afternoon tea and it couldn't have been better. Wonderfully fresh food, delicious and plenty of it. Excellent service. We had more food than we could manage but there was no problem in boxing it up for us take home. Lovely.

Every year we visit the idle of man we make sure we go to this restaurant. Always friendly, food is excellent. There are a couple dotted about the island. All have high standards of cleanliness and good food.

Opened in 2006 after the success of our Peel restaurant, Harbour Lights Ramsey is the largest in our family of restaurants, easily capable of seating up to 50 guests. Located in St Pauls Square in the centre of Ramsey it is just a short walk from the busy Harbour and Town.Ramsey favourites include our famous french onion soup and Welsh rarebit with locally smoked salmon. Also be sure to try our fantastic afternoon tea (bring a big appetite) complete with fresh from the oven scones and homemade Victoria sponge. After six o’clock Harbour Lights transforms into a friendly evening restaurant with great home cooked food and friendly service. Try the Lobster spaghetti. Harbour Lights Ramsey is fully licensed with an extensive list of beers and wines, many of which are exclusive to us.
